Hull design: The modern hybrid hull form makes for excellent sea-keeping qualities, combining a deep-vee entry for a comfortable, dry ride at speed, with a semi-cathedral underwater hull shape to provide exceptional stability at anchor.
Buoyancy: The large under-floor buoyancy chamber is foam-filled to give guaranteed buoyancy even if the hull is holed. Not only that, but there are also foam-filled buoyancy tanks in the stern and sides of the hull, creating a ‘life-ring’ of buoyancy that makes the Predator 165 one of the safest boats in its class. Independently monitored tests have proved it, even when the Predator 165 is heavily loaded and swamped, with an 80 hp 4-stroke fitted, it still floats level with its gunwales above water. If you want your family to be safe, the boat you need is the Predator 165
Cockpit: The generous cockpit makes the Predator 165 ideal for sea angling, diving, family fun, or even for use as a fast workboat.
Construction: The hull is constructed to Lloyds’ specification using only Lloyds’ approved materials. It incorporates a 12 inches deep solid hardwood inner keel for exceptional strength and rigidity, longitudinal hull reinforcing to provide for trailer loadings, and additional strength in the bows for dry recovery to a trailer. The hull also carries our two-year warrantee against defective materials and workmanship.
Windows: The windows are of tinted polycarbonate and are through-bolted to resist wave impact, an essential feature for seaworthiness.
Anchoring: The Predator 165 is equipped with a heavy duty stainless steel bow roller and a foredeck bollard which are accessed for safety from within the cuddy, through an opening front hatch. Anchor stowage is provided for with a storage compartment built into the bows area of the cuddy.
Due to our continuing efforts to improve our boats, specifications and prices may change without notice
Based on the enormously successful and sea-proven Predator 160, the all-new Predator 165 sets new standards of performance and safety, combined with a modern and stylish design.
Safety at Sea
The new Predator 165 was developed to be one of the safest boats in its class and, with that in mind, "unsinkable" just wasn't good enough.
A boat can be called "unsinkable" even if its stern is held under water by its outboard motor and its bows are pointing up at the sky like a rocket! What help is that if you are five miles offshore in a bitterly cold sea?
This doesn't happen with the all-new Predator 165. The "lifering" of buoyancy built into the hull of the Predator 165, which is additional to the usual underfloor buoyancy chamber, means that swamping is no longer the threat it used to be. Just click here to read about how we tested the new model.
And the Predator 165 is not just an extremely safe boat. Because it is based on the design of the unique, sea- proven hull of the Predator 160, it is also an excellent performer, too. And you don't have to take our word for that, just read some of the things the experts had to say:
"The nimblest boat I have tested."
(Simon Everett, Boat Fishing Monthly)
"Has the capability to be worked well off shore." (Mike Thrussell, Total Sea Fishing)
"This really is a good angling boat."
(Dave Lewis, Sea Angler)
